Ghanaian actress Yvonne Okoro has warned the public to desist from asking for the personal numbers of actresses when they call to buy tickets for her movie premieres because “we are not selling ourselves in addition to the tickets”.
Ms Okoro, one of the main casts of ‘Fix us’, a movie produced by fellow actress Yvonne Nelson and scheduled to be premiered at the Silverbird Cinema on 6 December 2019, passed the comment after a member of her team gave out the numbers to call for tickets during an interview on Accra100.5FM’s mid-morning show AyekooAyekoo on Tuesday, 5 November 2019.
Shortly after the numbers were announced for ticket sales, the 2010 Ghana Movie Awards Best Actress commented: “Please, when you call, don’t call to ask of our personal numbers; he will not give it to you. It is tickets that are being sold, we are not selling ourselves in addition. Please come and see the movie”.
Ms Okoro has featured in more 30 movies and has been nominated for Africa Movie Awards Best Actress twice in a row – 2011 and 2012 – for her movies ‘Pool Party’ and ‘Single Six’.
Apart from the two Yvonne’s, the other notable names in ‘Fix Us’ are Tobi from Big Brother Nigeria, Michelle Attoh, Hajia4real, Irene Logan and Prince David Osei.
